Phone Scam Warning Involving Hawai‘i Children’s Cancer Foundation
HONOLULU– (April 22, 2012) Hawai‘i Children’s Cancer Foundation (HCCF) would like to alert the public that the local non-profit may be a victim of a phone scam. The Foundation heard from two supporters today that an unidentified caller is reaching out to Hawai‘i residents and falsely representing themselves as someone seeking to raise funds for HCCF. This caller is in no way connected to HCCF. The local non-profit is not currently soliciting donations over the phone and never has.
If anyone receives a call of this nature, please do not provide any personal, confidential or financial information to anyone when responding to unsolicited phone calls. HCCF urges individuals to report any suspicious activity to the Honolulu Police Department.
